Foreword by Ricky Ponting.
Twenty20 cricket has quickly become the most popular form of the game and paralleling this popularity surge has been New Zealand's wicketkeeper-batsman Brendon McCullum. He is now regarded as New Zealand's best T20 player and one of the world's foremost exponents of the shortened game. Allied to his great cricketing skills, Brendon's outgoing disposition has endeared him to all followers of the game.
This book is an insider's look into the high octane world of Twenty20 cricket with a huge focus on the IPL - including that remarkable innings of Brendon's, which laid the perfect foundation for the opening tournament in 2008. A large section of the book is devoted to the 2009 T20 World Cup.
Included in a skills section and Brandon gives his views on the three forms of the world game and analyses where he thinks cricket should be heading.
